Punta Cana vacations

Your Punta Cana vacation

The second largest nation in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic is lined with idyllic stretches of sand and surf just waiting to be discovered. You'll find the island decked in resort luxury which -- together with neighboring Bávaro -- spans some 100 miles on the furthest east coast.

Travelers from around the world pamper themselves with Punta Cana vacations at all-inclusive resorts, complemented by dining in fine restaurants, golfing at championship courses and an array of water-based fun. 

Insider tips for Punta Cana travel

  • Imagine Nightclub

    For dancing outside the limits of your resort, Imagine Nightclub offers more than 115,000 square feet of space for dancing and having fun.

  • AltaMar

    Need a stylish bathing suit, jewelry or special gift? AltaMar, an upscale Dominican retail chain, has multiple locations, including Galleries de Punta Cana and the Riu Palace.

  • Caño Hondo

    For a scenic, off-the-beaten-track day trip, head to Caño Hondo, which has uncrowded beaches, picturesque streams and a large forest preserve. 

  • Higuey

    Spend an afternoon in Higuey, the charming capital of Altagracia Province. The strikingly modern Basilica of Our Lady of  Altagracia is the most-photographed site here.

Punta Cana highlights

  • Punta Cana
  • Beaches

    Put on your swimsuit and hit Cabeza de Toro, where the white sand and "Blue Flag" certification draws sun worshippers. Bávaro Beach is highly walkable and convenient to many hotels. Uvero Alto is another top Punta Cana beach, especially the golden sands along Macao.

  • Manati Park

    Meet numerous tropical birds and reptiles that call this 81-square-mile park home. Stroll lush, orchid-filled gardens and exhibits that highlight Taino Indian culture.

  • Fun Fun Cave

    Part of the "fun fun" is getting here: You'll rappel down into a network of caves and underground caverns, linked by a four-mile subterranean river. 

  • House Museum of Ponce de León

    Connect with the region's history at the House Museum of Ponce de León, the famous explorer who lived here in 1505 before heading on to Florida.

  • Dolphin Island Park

    A tour guide will whisk you by boat out to platforms where you'll snorkel and swim with the dolphins.

  • Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park

    Hike trails brimming with colorful and dramatic tropical plants and scenic lagoons.

  • Snorkeling

    Grab an underwater camera and head to offshore wrecks and pristine waters along Catalina Island and Saona Island where nurse sharks, green moray eels and lobsters are among the local residents. The Marinarium Marine Park and Aquarium also organizes snorkeling cruises.

  • Macao Beach

    Hop aboard a beach buggy or ATV for a bouncy, fun-filled zip along the coast.

  • Deep-sea fishing

    One of the world's best spots for billfish, late October is ideal for catching mahi-mahi, tuna, mackerel, swordfish and sailfish.

  • Punta Cana Ecological Reserve

    Nature lovers get their fix on this lush reserve. Spreading across 1,500 acres, you'll meet native butterflies, moths, beetles and more.

  • Golf Courses

    Several of the area's best resort hotels have their own golf courses, making Punta Cana vacations a logical favorite for golfers. Tee off at Punta Espada Golf Club, the first of three Jack Nicklaus signature courses at Cap Cana, where eight holes hug the Caribbean.
